About Rain Forest Explorers
This pleasant journey begins in a raft through the scenic Rio Penas Blancas. While you go paddling or floating downstream, our naturalist guide will show you a wide variety of trees, birds, monkeys and other wildlife. This is the perfect way to relax and enjoy the nature that usually coexists on this river. Fresh tropical fruit is offered at the end of this adventure. After that second activity is La Fortuna Waterfall; this place owns a beauty scenic surrounded by abundant vegetation, and great variety of flora and fauna. Excellent for swim in crystalline water or take pictures of the seventy meters height waterfall. Lunch has come on the right time, we will drive you to a local family house, there, you will enjoy a delicious typical lunch served in an open air area after lunch you can have a good cup of coffee and relax with the sounds of the nature. Third activity is the Arenal Volcano National Park. In contrast, Arenal is Costa Rica’s most active volcano. Within the national park, short trails pass through both secondary forest and lava fields from previous eruptions. Here you can see birds and some other wildlife during the walk. There are five different springs at Tabacon. A thermal river flows in two main channels throughout the resort. There is a cold river that winds through the property as well, offering up cooler pools that contrast nicely with the hot springs.
